In Minute 60 of The Whole Shebang, we have hit the halfway point of the podcast, and Mike celebrates in song! (while Jenny mercilessly mocks him) We then move back to the Max’s Kansas City analogue to talk about the Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, and James Dean… impersonators? fantasy figures? at the club, and the influence of the Hopper Nighthawks parody painting Boulevard of Broken Dreams on this scene, and the relationship between Warhol and Bowie, including Bowie playing him in Basquiat, the mysterious two companions of Curt Wild in this scene as he nods off, the real-life Bowie’s talent and how it compares to Brian’s, and meeting our idols and not embarrassing ourselves like Brian does with Curt: Jenny’s meeting Noel Fielding and Cat’s meeting Stewart Lee… or alternately embarrassing ourselves as Cat did with KateGoes.
